I saw this movie as the lower half of a double feature when it was released in 1957. I cannot recall the main feature, but the quality of "Come Next Spring" has been up front in my memory bank ever since. I have searched for it on DVD or VHS and never found it. Ann Sheridan was so totally believable as a middle aged country woman. It was by far the finest work Sonny Tufts ever did. Walter Brennan, Roscoe Ates and the entire supporting cast were superb. No one could have guessed it was a Republic production, for every major production value was in this picture. If anyone knows where a copy can be obtained, I would love to know.
